NFL Injury Report:
The New England Patriots are likely to add a wide receiver
through the upcoming NFL Draft, according to Michael David Smith of Pro
Smith notes that five wide receivers caught passes for the
Patriots last season, and none of those players are currently under contract
for the team.
The Patriots did sign St. Louis Rams free agent wide
receiver Danny Amendola earlier this offseason, and he’s likely to claim one of
the starting roles – potentially as a Wes Welker-type in New England’s offense.
Still, the Patriots will need to add at least one other wide
receiver through the draft as they continue to fill out their roster. New
England has had visits from USC Robert Woods, Oklahoma’s Kenny Still and Oregon
State’s Markus Wheaton. Smith notes that Wheaton is specifically the type of versatile
player New England covets, as he saw time at wide receiver and running back
during his time at Oregon State.

Even though the New England Patriots signed Danny Amendola this offseason, Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com believes they’ll likely come out of this year’s draft with a wide receiver. Whether it’s in the first, second or third round, I think it’s clear that the Patriots need to come out of the 2013 draft with a receiver. That, to me, is the most compelling storyline for the club...

The New England Patriots didn’t do too much to bolster their roster with new talent on the open market, but the club did a rock-solid job of retaining its own players over the last four weeks in 2013 NFL Free Agency. Let’s take a look at the Patriots’ updated team needs entering the 2013 NFL Draft (in no particular order). Photo Via New England Patriots Official Facebook...
The talk of NFL Free Agency this offseason was “Will Wes Welker return to New England?”, which quickly morphed into “How will the Patriots replace Wes Welker?” Wide Receiver depth has never really been a strong point of this team. When they were dominating teams in the regular season and playoffs (beat you all to the joke), they were doing it with the likes of Deion Branch...

New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has been
battling a “stubborn infection” in the area around where a second metal plate
was installed to repair his broken left forearm, putting his readiness for the
start of the season in jeopardy, according to Ron Borges and Karen Guregian of
The Boston Herald.

The Twitter avatar bet is slowly becoming the wager of choice for many professional athletes whose teams square off in the NCAA Tournament (or bowl games). The latest example?

The two are currently teammates for the New England Patriots...

Infections can be a serious thing post-surgery, it is one of the things that doctors always warn you about, because if something does get infected, you have to basically have the same surgery all over again.
Doctors thought they got all of GRONK’s infection out after his 3rd surgery on his forearm, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
